A man and woman were arrested with what police said was a large quantity of methamphetamine at a Walmart shopping center on Glenwood Avenue early Thursday.

In arrest warrants, police said that Dora Irma Marcias-Flores, 45, and Marco Antonio Sanchez-Oceguera, 27, said that the two had more than 400 grams of meth. Both were listed in booking records as living permanently in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.

Marcias-Flores and Sanchez-Oceguera were each charged with two counts of methamphetamine trafficking after the 1 a.m. arrest at 6600 Glenwood Ave.

Each was held in lieu of $3 million bail.

State law makes possession of 400 grams or any amount over that a Class C felony, for which a conviction carries a prison sentence of 18 years, 9 months to 23 years and 6 months and a minimum fine of $250,000.

The actual quantity of meth confiscated was not available Thursday morning, nor were details about why the two people were at the shopping center.

Each suspect was held on $3 million bail pending a Thursday court hearing.

Arrest records showed that a check with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement showed no reason for that agency to ask Wake officials to hold either person.
